shootings at the fireworks

Six people were shot at Hart Plaza tonight just as the fireworks show ended. At least one person has been killed, two others are in critical condition. There were about a million people down there tonight. The police are trying to find the shooter.

Why can't people just enjoy the fireworks? Why do people have to do stupid stuff like that?

Update: Early reports that one person had died were wrong. They corrected that last night, but LiveJournal was acting up, so I wasn't able to edit this post. This morning, I heard on the radio that there were actually nine people injured, two of which are still in critical condition. I heard one story that the shooting was over some Cartier glasses and another story that it may have been over a woman. *sigh*
